Sup Foil Sessions At The Gorge | Taking Flight On a Stand Up Paddleboard

“The GoFoil For SUP – has changed the game in wave riding paddle sports. After years of R&D we discovered how to balance lift, stability and speed to create an experience many describe as ‘taking flight’.

Combining the action of gliding through the ocean with soaring through the wind. The board lifts from the water between 4-8 mph, depending on wave push, positive angle and rider weight. Once airborne the foil takes over and then it is a matter of hunting the trough of the wave and looking for swells to link up.

Less effort is required to maintain and propel speed as the board is now a non-factor in friction and drag. As the rider catches a glide, the acceleration through the water keeps the foil, board and rider rising above the surface.

The GoFoil has been tested in both downwind paddling and wave ridingPerforming well in both configurations. Board size and dimensions are based on user preference, which usually has to do with size/weight of rider and style preferred.

The GoFoil must be attached to your board using a Tuttle box which is a standard box used in both wind surfing boards and kite boards for years as a very strong and dependable way to mount large fins and endure heavy load. Tuttle boxes can be purchased separately as an addon, please select checkbox if needed.” –
